Health workers at the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), on Thursday, April 15 embarked on a seven-day warning strike.
Idzi Isua, the vice-chairman of the Medical and Health Workers Union confirmed the development.
According to him, the union is demanding the payment of promotion arrears for 2018 and 2019 promotions owed its members amongst other pending issues.
Isua added: “More worrisome is that 2020 promoted staff will soon (also) join the queue. This request has lingered for too long hence the strike action.”
This is one of the series of strike actions rocking the country recently. The latest strike action was embarked by the resident doctors over unpaid salaries which have left the ailing health system in comatose.
